I Want To Ride My Bicycle. I Want To Ride It Where I Like.

Have I mentioned how much I simply LOVE Portland?
The Rose City is a magnet for fun, weird shit.
Case in point: An annual Roller Race, part of the Oregon Manifest Handmade Bike Show this past weekend.
Race a stationary bike, dismount, grab a kiddie bike, run around the bar and be the first to touch the cow bell.
How fun would this have been in Beijing??

While there, I bumped into Torsten, Jamie, Mike D & Deb par hazard. How crazy is that?! All are bicycling aficionados. All were smiling and enjoying the squirrelly event, which had some nutty lighting and color.
Again, imagine if they had this in Beijing??
At one point, I turned to Mike and asked him if he could understand why I love weird sports so much.
With his patented dry delivery and a subdued smile, he replied: “What’s so weird about this?”

    Wow! You have some amazing pictures! I never knew that about the Rose City…and the more I learn about P-town, the more I love it!

    (I’m across the river, but spend most of my time and cash in Portland.)
